MBE for Eric Stokes

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate our club president Eric Stokes for recieving his MBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours.

Eric has been involved in lifesaving for more than 50 years, and was one of the founding members of the Kent Branch of the RLSS.  He has been an important member of our club, always helping out and offering advice and support.  He has also mentored a number of club members to become fully qualified trainers and assessors for the RLSS.

Boxing day dip

Well it is that time of year again, when the mad members of the club drag friends and family to the beach for a boxing day swim.  The sea this year was very nice and calm unlike last year and but still cool.  Congratulations everyone for braving the sea on boxing day, see you all again next year.
